In college, my roommate Stevan said I paced too much. Now my grandma says I travel too much. Long story short, I cannot sit my ass down for too long without getting bored. While I love (some things about) North Carolina, I really have a thing for getting out and seeing what else the world has to offer. Be it business travel, like my trip to Denver in January, or a personal trip, like the one to the Dominican Republic this past September, having an opportunity to explore the world is why I go to work every day.
As I prepare for Spring Break (and a week without blogging here*), I must say that they’re right. I have a problem and it’s one that I don’t want to get rid of. I like getting out and doing. Thing is, it’s gotten worse. My good friend from college, Jakiya left the US for a year with nothing but a carry on and now I’m trying to figure out how I can eventually do the same. Check out her story here.
Life is too short, the world is too big, and getting from country to country is too easy for me not to see as much of this earth as possible. Yes, I realize I am speaking from a place of privilege but if I have this opportunity to see and do more, why wouldn’t I? So, cheers to NY and DC next week and my international trip over the summer. I’m hooked.
Make enjoying your life a priority.
